Has this already been fixed?  I notice a pull request from you got merged.

Actually, I think we were only testing PowerPC big-endian.  Maybe a bug
preventing build on big-endian sneaked in since then.

Oh.  This means you got the arch.h settings wrong for your machine,
perhaps the endianness.

You really shouldn't be working from those old commits - you should
just work with the latest tree.

Please update us all on the current status.
